Emma Ruth Rundle (Marriages, Red Sparowes) is back in the UK this December after her sold-out shows earlier this year, with a string of UK dates kicking off in Brighton on the 12th December and finishing in London at Bush Hall on the 16th December.
Emma released her highly acclaimed second solo album Marked for Death last year on Sargent House. The record mines feelings of loss, defeat, heartache and self-destructiveness and emerges as Emma's most honest and compelling accomplishment to date. Marked for Death finds her emerging as a performer of naked intensity; she shapes vast, evocative landscapes of sound, combining them with lyrics of devastating candor.
Marked for Death’s most resonant element is Emma Ruth Rundle herself, settling in to her role as singer/songwriter. Her rich voice, alternately jostled and cradled by the sounds conjured from her guitar, feels more present, perhaps even more deliberate, than ever before.
